American Veterans History Project

The American Patriots History Association (APHA) is a nonprofit volunteer organization registered in the State of Colorado.  Our primary goal is to identify and interview as many veterans and support personnel as possible who are willing to participate in the Veterans History Project (VHP), part of the American Folklife Center at the Library of Congress and the National Archives.  History needs to be written by those who were there.

Every veteran receives a free DVD copy of their interview.

Locally, APHA:

  •  Uses our interviews for educational programs and events
  •  Shares these stories with the media as a way to honor our Colorado veterans
  •  Develops TV documentaries and historical lecture series


Our work is supported solely by donations and sponsorships.

Help us capture and preserve Colorado veteran stories by sending a generous contribution to APHA!
